Penguin launches books in Hindi (NDTV)

"Hoping to expand their publishing base, leading English-language publishers Penguin have launched a new and ambitious publishing programme in Hindi and other Indian languages.

"The Hindi list includes Hamara Hissa, an anthology of stories by well known writers like Kamleshwar, Rangeraghav, Mamta Kalia and Mridula Garg, translations of Khushwant Singh's bestselling Paradise and Other Stories, Anita Nair's Ladies Coupe and Namita Gokhale's Shakuntala.
[...]
""This is a very significant day for us. For the first time in our history we are publishing outside the English language. Bestsellers in the English language will now be available to more people," said John Makinson, CEO, Penguin Worldwide.
[...]
Also simultaneously launched in English and Hindi was writer Namita Gokhale's new novel, Shakuntala or Smriti Jaal set on the ghats of Kashi.

"Though I am basically an English writer, there are certain words certain feelings which you can express with one word in Hindi but you need several statements in English. There is always a feeling of incompleteness when one's books are only in English," said Namita Ghokhale."

बहुत अच्छा लगा सुनकर। पर अगर देखें तो यहां पर विदेशी ही हिन्दी को बढ़ावा ए रहे हैं, देसी तो एक दूसरे को गाली देते रहते हैं।
